In Barbara’s book All of Me: An Extraordinary Life, originally published in 2000, Barbara explained that their age difference didn’t bother them.
Barbara said: “We discussed the age gap, but we agreed that it would be more of a problem for others than for us. ”
In 2014, Barbara was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, but it wasn’t until four years later that Scott spoke publicly about her diagnosis.
At the time, Scott exclusively told The Sun in 2018: “She suddenly has no memory of our history.
Today Scott revealed he placed Barbara in full-time care as her Alzheimer’s disease worsened.
Speaking in the sun, Scott explained how it had been an “emotional roller coaster” for him.
He told the publication: “I feel like I’m on an emotional roller coaster. I walk around, trying to keep busy, then burst into tears. It looks like mourning.
“It has always been my biggest fear, that one day I would have to take her somewhere and she would be like, ‘Why would he do this to me?’
“This fear has become a reality. This is something I never wanted. ”
He went on to explain how he wanted the best for Barbara.
Scott added, “Deep down I know it’s for the best, but Barbara isn’t doing it yet.
“I always try to envision when this becomes her normalcy, and she will settle down and be happy.
“But at the moment, she still occasionally gets angry with me and wants to come home.”
“But it’s the disease and, although it’s painful for me to accept it, I don’t regret the decision. I know this had to happen for Barbara’s well-being. “
